What's goin on here!!!!!!
    #1063255 - 11/18/02 05:56 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

This is my second time trying to grow. The first time got contaminated. This second time I made sure to steralize everything. Boiled the jars themself with the lids. Baked Vermaculite for 20 min at 350, Steam steralized substrait for 1 hr and flame steralized the needle between each jar and for a least 30 seconds.

Now I looked at my jars and it looks like there might be some brown fuzzy stuff getting started where the needle was inserted in the jar. The white stuff is spreding nice and fast. Two questions.

1- Could the spores themself been contaminated from where I got them?
2- Will the white stuff overgrow the contaminate

I love shrooms!!!!!

It does sound like contamination, you'll have to keep an eye on them and maybe ask for a refund. By the way, I've found the Oven innoculation tek to be really useful in stopping contamination. And you've got a top dry layer of verm in your jars haven't you?

Washed my hands everytime I went to touch the jars. No I didn't spray lysol didn't have any, but I cleaned the area real good.

Your spores could very well be contaminate.
Also if you didn't use bleach to sterilize your jars after your previous contamination bout then you will 100% get contamination again and again until you bleach sterilize your jars.
